    What was your first single and album.

    My first album came first, I was getting a record player for Christmas, so mum took me into a music shop to choose a record to play on it. I didn't have a great knowledge of music at the time so I went with something I had heard a couple of songs on, Shakin' Stevens Greatest Hits... My first single was a bit of a plan B for me. Me and my mate had gone down town to Woolies to buy the Northern Ireland 1986 World Cup song, but they had sold out! I thought I'd rather buy something else rather than return home empty handed, I chose Madonna's Who's That Girl. I don't know why, I wasn't even a big fan of Madonna!

    British Airways 100th anniversary retro colours

    Is there not a time limit on what can be termed as "retro"? The 747 in Landor is beautiful, but seriously, Landor "retro"? Is last season's football shirt retro?

    It's the replacement for Nimrod the RAF are getting.

    737 Max

    This won't have any bearing on the Poseidon will it?
  6. Without wanting to add any more spanners to your marvellous work, Sir, but are you going to tackle the badly misshapen tailplanes the kit provides us with? Apparently they're too long and too rounded at the tips.

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    Everything except the "cats" bit. Comedians under 40... That's reminded me of a major grump I have. Years ago I had the pleasure of visiting a comedy night in Manchester. I laughed only once, and that was more a single "Ha." The reason? I counted only four subjects that were covered that entire evening by the four "comedians". These were:- Genitalia Sex The Royal Family Cursing That was it. I find any routine about the above to be very lazy. If a "comedian" has to resort to any of the above, then they are really struggling. At least the likes of Billy Connolly used real life for example...

    'Tis the Season...to Grump

    Oh I hear you on this, I was watching the footie a few days ago, one of the internationals, Switzerland vs Belgium I think. Now I know Co-Commentators aren't usually Shakespeares but when you hear him come out with the line "That defending was sloppy as." I cringed. He sounded like a oldish bloke too. Sloppy as. No explanation as to what it was as sloppy as, no, he just left it hanging there, keeping millions of viewers up and down the country on the edge of their seats waiting to find out. We never did. Followed the next day, on the news this time a reporter, talking about the feeling at Number 10 concerning Brexit or something, that "feelings have been pumped up to ten." Sorry, what? Do you mean tensions have risen to a high level? Concerns have been greatly raised? What the actual eff does pumped up to ten mean, and why is a major news network employing these people as reporters?? And breathe.....
